Tigernut Fufu | Low Carb, Gluten-Free Fufu | All Nigerian Recipes


Hey guys, I’m back with another fufu recipes
series but this time,
I’ll be focusing on low carb fufu recipes.
The last time I did this series,those on a
low carb diet were like
“Oh, you forgot all about us.
You didn’t upload even one single low carb
fufu meal.”
Yes, “I’m taking it one at a time” as I always
say.
I planned to do a different series for those
on a low carb diet.
These fufu meals may be called low carb fufu
meals but it’s for everyone.
For instance if ou are like me, I have to
eat a swallow meal every single day.
If not, my day is not complete.
The only time that that does not happen is
when I’m away from home.
Or if I’m on a tight schedule somewhere such
that I can’t meet up.
Otherwise, it must happen o, a swallow meal
must happen.
So if you are like me, you can decide to eat
a low carb fufu meal three days in a week,
and then for the remaining days you eat a
normal fufu meal,
those ones that contain lots of starch.
So yea, this will help you reduce the amount
of starch you put into your body.
Yes!
So consider this tigernut fufu meal the first
of the series.
Like I did the last time, I will try and upload
a low carb fufu recipe every single day from
now on.
Click the link that pops up on the screen
to access
the other low carb fufu meals in the series.
Let’s go!
We will be using tiger nuts flour to make
the tigernuts fufu.
I have a video of how to make TigerNuts Flour.
The link should pop up on the screen right
now.
Tigernuts flour is gluten-free and grain free,
because of this, we need a binder to make
it mouldable
so you can make fufu balls with it.
If you are on a gluten-free diet or you want
to keep the carbs as low as possible,
you should use psyllium husk to bind the tigernuts
flour.
Please read up on psyllium husk to be sure
it is good for you before you eat it.
If you are not on a low carb diet or gluten-free
diet but you just
want to generally reduce the starch in your
fufu meals because every little helps,
you can use any starchy flour as binder eg
quaker oats flour, semolina,
all purpose flour or garri to bind it.
Just like in my coconut fufu recipe, the link
to the video
should pop up on the screen right now,
I will use 2 parts of tigernut flour to 1
part of the starchy flour.
I will be using semolina for this demonstration.
So I add 1 cup of tigernuts flour.
And half cup of semolina flour.
Mix very well.
For the second option, I add 1 cup of tigernut
flour
And half a teaspoon of psyllium husk.
Then make it like you would any powdered fufu
meal.
When the water boils, start adding the mix
continuously while stirring at the same time.
Keep mixing till there are no lumps.
Then add a few drops of water.
That’s a little bit more than a few drops
but yeah!
Cover and let it steam all over.
Then mix again till smooth.
When done, wrap with a cling film else it
will dry out.
It is the same process for the second option.
If you still want to be extra in keeping the
carbs low,
serve with a Nigerian Soup that does not use
a high carb ingredient as thickener,
the list will be in the description box below
the video.
For any other person, serve with any Nigerian
soup for swallows.
Watch out for the next low carb fufu meal
tomorrow.
And please click the like button if you found
this video helpful.
Bah byee see you soon!

    This is nice. who would have even thought of using AKI HAUSA for anything swallow? We learn everyday. They are all nice but nothing can replace my Akpu and ezigbo ofe Oha or Ofe Nsala. Infact am hungry now.

    Hi Flo, I am all for trying different low carb fufu options but I am sensitive to smells of the foods I eat. They say "the nose eats before the mouth" and in my case this is true. Does this tigernut fufu have a strange smell? I watched your cabbage fufu and I know that cooked cabbage does not smell pleasant. I have never tasted Akpu (cassava fufu) before because if it's awful smell I remember when grow up. So please tell us the smell as well as the texture when demonstrating this "fufu week" thanks. πŸ˜‚

    Hi Flo, happy to watch one of your nice and practical recipes again. Yes, low carb diet seems to be the healthiest type of diet for everyone of us no matter who we are and where we live. Obesity and diabetes due to high carb diets is hitting ppl all over the world. I will share your video on me Facebook account because I find it welcomed. I wish you all the best, together with your family

    So you say gluten free in the title but then use semolina in the recipe β€˜for this demonstration’. Does not make any sense.
